My blog is changing! It will now focus on my new shop, getting it ready, class schedules, upcoming specials and new arrivals. I'll probably still have to mention my grandson occassionally.

I'm 46 years old, mother of 2 and grandma of 1. I'm divorced but still live as roommates with my ex. I love to knit and buy yarn. After I was laid off from my job of 9 years I decided to go with my yarn and knitting obsession and follow a different path. I decided to open a yarn shop. Unwind, A Yarn Shop will open December 1st
